Dear UC Community,
Please be aware that a sexual assault was reported to UCPD on Sept. 22, 2019, that occurred on Sept. 21, 2019, at about 11:30 p.m. in an unknown residence hall on UC’s Uptown West Campus. UCPD is investigating the incident. The victim and the suspect are not known to one another.
Sexual assault includes sexual conduct or contact, as well as other activity of a sexual nature, without the consent of the other person or when knowing the other person is unable to consent. Sexual assault can range from voyeurism and public indecency to rape. Consent is informed, freely given, mutual and can be withdrawn at any time. For more information on consent, please go to http://www.uc.edu/titleix/policies-definitions.html.
If you or someone you know is a victim of a gender-based or sexual assault crime and do not want to file a police report, you can make a report with Title IX at http://www.uc.edu/titleix.html. For campus and community gender-based and sexual assault support services, visit www.uc.edu/safe.
Important Safety Tips:
Responsibility for sexual assault lies with the perpetrators, not the survivor. Most offenders assault someone they know. No one deserves, asks for, or provokes sexual assault. The following suggestions may help reduce the possibility of experiencing such a crime, or may improve opportunities to receive prompt assistance.
In a non-emergency situation you can reach UCPD at 513-556-1111 or Cincinnati Police at 513-765-1212. For more information about UC’s safety resources, including the Bearcat Guardian app, visit www.uc.edu/publicsafety.
